Tar Heels Praising Terps
Maybe North Carolina players have not seen all the Maryland games we have seen. Or maybe they have some early holiday cheer and don't want to insult the Terps defense a few days before their visit to Byrd Stadium. Whatever the reason, the Tar Heels spoke highly of Maryland's defense, which, I have said for weeks, has either been inconsistent or poor for much of the season.
"I think they really use their personnel well," quarterback Cameron Sexton said. "I think they do some good things schematically we have seen a little bit this season, but not too much. I think they will do a good job matching up against us, so it's going to be a week of preparation where we need to do a good job working on the individual stuff of our offense."
Running back Ryan Houston said: "Maryland is a good team. I watched them a little bit on film this morning. I think they have a good run defense and a good linebacker corps. We have to pound the ball on them at first and then try to open up the pass."
Defensive tackle Marvin Austin on returning home to play against Maryland: "It is very exciting. It is going to be important to stop the run and make them one-dimensional. They do a lot of things on offense to confuse the defense. They try to make the same things look different and make different things look the same. I get to go back and a lot of people in my family, and around the area want to see me play in person. A lot of them have not had that opportunity, so it is going to be a pretty special game."
